Thanks for this. I am a bit more anxious this Christmas, but I am trying to organise my what ifs and queries usefully.

I just thought I would add that we have needed both 111 and 999 more than once this year, and they have been helpful and quick in all cases.

Thanks Leukaemia Care for this clear information, and you really deserve a break too.
